Usually this style of painting I use for flowers or animals, but decided to give 'a view' a go this time. I have taken photos of the stages to show how it built up.
No pencil outlines on this one, just used the paint and as you see some of the colours (most of the colours) ran into each other - I just thought 'let's experiment' and see where this takes me. Notice that on the phone box and the wheels of the flower cart I have scratched the outlines whilst the paint is still wet - yes it fills in and leaves a dark line if you do it too soon, but that was just what I wanted - actually used a stylus pen (that had proved useless for its original purpose) but was ideal for this -
When the first layer had dried I then went in with stronger paint and defined the detail. Adding more detail with a Uniball pen.
It was fun experimenting with this sketch and
it came out more or less as I had hoped......what do you think?
Have you done any paintings in this style?
